Welcome to the forum! :welcome:

Quite a diversified collection of bikes. Is there one type of riding that really interests you? You are here so I take it you have an interest in light bikes so any future plans for any of your bikes or a new build?

I have the WW bug applied to the Black Market Edit1. 22.6 lbs with two DH brakes, DH cranks, and Chris King hubs is a very good weight. Thanks to carbon bars, 271g pedals, and titanium bolts almost all around.
